We actually did it! 18 Grams Barista Mr. Chan Chak Sum had won first place in the 2011 Hong Kong Barista Championship. Congratulations to Mr. Sum Chan and also congratulations to Ms. Yanbi Leung in gainning the 3rd runner up in the competition. A great effort of collaboration of all staff in Glory Coffee and 18 Grams, I can’t say enough how proud I am of our whole team. Preparation is already underway for the World Barista Championship 2012 in Vienna. We are officially sailing in uncharted waters! We will do all we can to support Mr. Sum Chan in entering this contest, this time it is the Hong Kong coffee industry’s reputation on the line, we won’t let you all down.Lastly I want to congratulate all baristas attended and competed in this event and everyone who helped out. The organizer of the event had done a marvelous job this year, we will definitely see everyone again in HKBC 2012! J.S.
